Vandalized house (Metro News)
From Metro News
A string of racist vandalism against a black man and his white partner has shocked a collegial Newmarket neighbourhood and pushed a couple to the brink.
The latest of three incidents happened sometime between Christmas Eve night and early Christmas morning, according to York Regional Police.
Rita Brown, who along with her partner, Seun Oyinsan, moved into a home this summer on quiet suburban Hodgson Drive, discovered the “N” word scratched on the hood of her car Christmas Day.
That came roughly three months after two other attacks on their home and vehicles. During the first, on Sept. 10, swastikas were spray-painted on the couple’s garage and their SUV was defaced with the “N” word and acid thrown on the sides. Nails hammered into small pieces of wood were also left under their tires.
